We see this as an opportunity to build an educational plan on credit and homebuying, and since the Sanguine team will be based in Atlanta, we will be able to help mentor the team on their journey.”

With the Team House, we will be able to play and live together. We can call team meetings in minutes and build synergy both in and outside of gaming as a team. Having this tight team together to practice and prepare is crucial for maintaining a competitive environment, and by supporting us with this team house, Equity Prime Mortgage is helping us prepare to take the number one spot at World Championship SMITE.”
